    Oh my NO - I'm lucky if I get to sew one day during the weekend. And now we are packing to thin out the house so we can sell it. Poor Me!!! I will be lucky if I get to sew at all right now :-(

    I wish I could sew everyday but life gets in the way. Once in a while I do get a stretch of 3-4 days in a row in my sewing room.

    I am retired live with a daughter and have no real duties to keep me from sewing, health issues limit my sewing time and I sew while I feel like it but not daily. I still enjoy the time I can sew and the projects do get done altho not as fast as I was when I first started. While I was working I sewed in small time areas and on the weekend and made several quilts that was too so you can make them if you like them well enough to stay busy with them and they bring a high reward for years to come

    I try to sew a couple times a week but if I'm not in the mood it doesn't happen. Wednesday nights were my "designated" time but for the next 3 Wednesday nights I'm gonna sit in a "couponing" class (to hopefully learn how to save money) I know when the nicer weather hits though I won't be inside as much so I get it in now while I can.

    Sometimes I do not sew for weeks. I do have other things to do although I would love to sit at the machine with some good music on or maybe a good movie playing in the background with no phone and no hubby, lol. Oh, and no dogs

    I sewed most of Friday and have spent yesterday and today trying to calm the back spasms down. I loose track of time, do too much and pay for it later. I need to get a loud alarm clock and set the alarm. When it rings the sewing stops. I can't do this to myself any more. I have no deadlines and daily short sessions would prove more productive...Pains a good teacher to learn moderation!

    I don't sew every day. Sometimes not even every week. Mostly it depends on what I'm interested in at the time or what things in life or around the house need to be done. On the other hand, sometimes I sew for a couple of days running if the mood is on me.

    I get to sew maybe two - three days a week... though there are times when I do get to sew all day... like yesterday. Between sewing and cutting and measuring... I'd say I got to enjoy eight productive hours! WHOOO HOOOO!!!

    I don't sew every day. I wish I could. Sometimes I work as a substitute teacher. I seem to end up with mending and alteration jobs from the other teachers though.

    I quilt every day . . . in my head. I am still working full time and often only get to sew/quilt when I can set aside time on a week-end or on occasion an evening. My mind is always planning, refining and planning some more. To me planning is relaxing and creative. So, until the time I retire from my office duties and students, I will be a part time quilter. Holiday and semester breaks and even a rare show emergency day are gifts of time and dedicated to working on what ever quilting project is at hand.
